    Another method if you don’t have Game Stock Car Extreme (or older versions) on you computer too (since this title is its replacement) is once patched as stated above just leave it named GSC.exe and execute it directly using that exe name.

    It doesn´t work for me. Do I have to copy the AMS.exe to the Desktop and rename it to GSC.exe. Then run the cmd.exe and type in under the desktop folder gsc? The game is starting but without motion. Where is my mistake. I did the steps before too.

    No. Just rename cmd.exe to gsc.exe.

    Did Simtools tell you that your patch was successful?

    Go to C:\windows\system32
    Copy cmd.exe on your desktop and rename it to GSC.exe
    Run GSC.exe (simtools turns blue)
    Run the game.

    I fixed it now. First I unpatche GSC. Then I renamed the AMS.exe to GSC.exe and patched it. Started the Sim with the GSC.exe and running fine.
